A Woodbridge architecture student was the top winner in a scholarship program.
Amanda Mullen, who attends the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, received a $5,000 scholarship from the American Institute of Architects-NJ (AIA-NJ) at an awards dinner held in Point Pleasant.
Mullen was awarded the funding based on her scholastic achievement and talent for the profession, according to a statement released by AIA-NJ.
Mullen is in the third year of a five-year bachelor's program at Pratt.
Other contest winners included Sarah Blitzer of Haworth and Steven Young of Fair Lawn.
“Architecture students are the future of the architecture industry,” said Jack Purvis, president of AIA-NJ, in a statement. “As the statewide organization for New Jersey architects, we recognize the importance of celebrating architectural students’ achievements, as well as helping them to meet their financial obligations. The grants are a testament to their success and thirst to succeed in this vital profession.”
